  • Annapurna (Sanskrit, Nepali, Newar: अन्नपूर्णा) is a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes one peak over 8,000 metres (26,000 ft), thirteen peaks over 7,000 metres (23,000 ft), and sixteen more over 6,000 metres (20,000 ft). The massif is 55 kilometres (34 mi) long, and is bounded by the Kali Gandaki Gorge on the west, the Marshyangdi River on the north and east, and by Pokhara Valley on the south. At the western end the massif encloses a high basin called the Annapurna Sanctuary. Annapurna I Main is the tenth highest mountain in the world at 8,091 metres (26,545 ft) above sea level. The entire massif and surrounding area are protected within the 7,629 square kilometres (2,946 sq mi) Annapurna Conservation Area, the first and largest conservation area in Nepal. The Annapurna Conservation Area is home to several world-class treks, including the Annapurna Circuit. Historically, the Annapurna peaks are among the world's most dangerous mountains to climb, although in more recent history, using only figures from 1990 and after, Kangchenjunga has a higher fatality rate.By March 2012, there had been 191 summit ascents of Annapurna I Main, and 61 climbing fatalities on the mountain.[5] This fatality-to-summit ratio (32%) is the highest of any of the eight-thousanders. In particular, the ascent via the south face is considered, by some, the most difficult of all climbs. In October 2014, at least 43 people were killed as a result of snowstorms and avalanches on and around Annapurna, in Nepal's worst ever trekking disaster.
  • Mountain biking through the valleys and plateaus of Annapurna conservation area is accompanied by breathtaking mountain views. The biking trail of Annapurna circuit passes through lush green forests, mountain valleys and pristine rivers. On the wheels we roll up and down and experience this pristine conserved area, making your trip best of the adventures.

  • The Annapurna is connected by an expansive network of trails that link the Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp or the Sanctuary treks. The last line of the trek is at Annapurna Base Camp at 4,130m with 360-degree view of the range.The ten days trek begins in the rain forest before heading into the high mountains. Several trails are marked to get to this unique trekking destination . This trek is also famously considered as a Annapurna Circuit trek with several trails to get to a junction where a single main trail finally leads the way. The trek starting almost from the plains of Pokhara traverses a variety of terrain, different cultures and landscapes in a very short time without having to conten
